i have the same slightly surprised expression in every picture ever taken of me.
i hate reading about romanticism. this essay’s stripping all the fun out of it. romanticism is the best topic in the world, full of the craziest people. how can you possibly make byron dry? the man who kept peacocks and horses in his house and went to war just because he was offered a title? the original rockstar? how can you make me bored of byron? or shelley, who was so obsessed with his work that he frequently forgot he had a son. he tripped over his kid once and was all ‘WHO DOES THIS BELONG TO’ and mary was all ‘…uhhh, you, douche’. that’s not verbatim but that’s pretty much how it went down in tone. and blake, how can you make blake look dull? blake saw ANGELS.
